Free admission • No signup required

  • 22.10. 14.00-17.00
Ana Mendieta: Silueta Works in Mexico, 1973-1977 / Phoro: HAM/Hanna Kukorelli

Come and create land art with us in Vuosaari in the spirit of artist Ana Mendieta. We will use flowers and other natural materials to create the artworks. We will draw outlines of our bodies on the ground with yarn and fill out the portraits formed on the ground with flowers, twigs or leaves.

In addition to the art workshop, the event will feature artist Anne Koskinen speaking about her piece Stone. Come talk with the artist about her piece and its significance to the area.

The workshop will be held at 14:00–16:00, while Anne Koskinen will be there to talk at 16:00–17:00.

The event is related to the Come Back As A Flower exhibition running at HAM, which weaves delicately around pieces of the Silueta series (1973–1977) by Ana Mendieta that are held in HAM’s collection. The group exhibition will also feature artists such as Anne Koskinen, whose public piece Stone is located in Vuosaari, by Kauniinilmanpolku near Uutela Canal.
